Who Are We?

 

GINA

Gina is a tarot reader, teacher, and intuitive at her business, Incandescent Tarot.

She loves to bond with others over a love of intuition, energy, and magic and believes that we all have an innate connection to them as humans, no matter our backgrounds or belief systems. because of this you can often find her hosting a meetup, teaching a class, or waxing poetic about the beauty of everyone’s individual wisdom.

a practicing witch with a nature-based & non-traditional approach, she loves creating spontaneous rituals, looking for oracles while out and about running errands, and finding connections between the magical & the mundane.

When not reading tarot, you can find her frolicking with her large menagerie of creatures (three dogs, a cat, a pigeon, and a fish) or watching cheesy horror movies.

BRI

Bri is a tarot lover, amateur astrologer & metaphysical writer for her community-focused, story-based blog, Tadpole Magic.

she holds the inherent belief that we all contain immense knowledge and wisdom within ourselves, and that we must become students to one another.

As a result, Access to magical resources is a huge priority for Bri as she wants everyone to have the chance to connect to the intuition and magic that is around them and that they hold within themselves.

She is also invested in the respectful and accurate documentation of modern witchcraft and runs an oral history project called the Origin Story Project. she will also be attending the folklore ma program starting in fall 2019 at UNC Chapel hill to further pursue this passion in an academic setting.

in her time not consumed by projects, she is an ice cream lover, weightlifter + cycle instructor, and matcha devotee.

 

What Inspired Us to Start Open Magic?

I wanted to create a space to share and explore magic with others and open up conversations around more complex areas that often get glossed over in modern spirituality. Plus, I’m a huge nerd (excuse me, enthusiast) and couldn’t resist the opportunity to research and talk more about the topics I love.
— Gina
I was interested in creating a resource that focuses not so much on “how” to practice particular modalities and rituals, but “why” we engage with them in the ways we do. Plus, I was thrilled about the idea of doing research on these topics and being able to bring in experts to discuss them!
